Runners Lace Up for ALS Society’s Legacy Run

The weather looks like it will cooperate for the ALS Society of Manitoba’s Legacy Run today.

The 5k run at St. Vital Park begins at 9 a.m. at the Duck Pond, with proceeds going directly to fighting ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

ALS is a rapidly progressive fatal neuromuscular disease. It is characterized by degeneration of a select group of nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord, which leads to progressive paralysis of the muscles.

Early donations have brought in nearly $500 for the run. Anyone wishing to donate can still do so online.
